Old Times is responsible not
only for bringing to its readers the
news of the day, but also enjoys the
task of looking at moments from the
College's long history. From time
to time we are also charged, as in
the interview with the Principal,
with looking forward to the future.
This issue's cover uses historic
images of the College from the
collection of Stephen Burkart

About this issue
It is my pleasure to re-introduce
Old Times to the Upper Canada
College community. Upper Canada
College is fortunate to have such a
vibrant association with its students,
faculty, parents, Old Boys and their
families and friends of the College. As
an Old Boy (Class of '71 ), a volunteer,
a parent with two sons at the College,
and now a member of staff, I have a
unique opportunity to provide you
with a window on College life.
Communication about what is
happening in the UCC community is
essential and Old Times will continue
to be one of the ways in which the
College tells its story to the community.
While Old Times will present interesting
and thought provoking articles on
aspects of the College's past, it will
also communicate what drives the
College's strategic agenda. Old Times
will look to the past and feature articles
and stories of interest to our readers and
seek to define the relevance of these
features to the contemporary world of
UCC students, faculty and staff, parents,
Old Boys and friends of the College.
Our lead article is a commentary by
the Principal on UCC's Strategic Plan.
The Plan paints an exciting, innovative
and compelling vision for the UCC
of today and the future. From my
experience over the past year, I am
deeply impressed with the academic
programs and extracurricular
activities that the students embrace
with such enthusiasm and vigour.
In this issue, Doug Blakey explains
the fundamental aspects of UCC's
strategic plan and talks about how
we are setting out expectations for
the future of the College.
The College provides a dynamic and
exciting environment for the men and
women who teach and work at UCC,
and future issues of Old Times will also
provide an opportunity to introduce
new teachers and staff to the College
community and to pay our respects
to those who have left. Class Notes
and our Of Interest sections have been
maintained and updated by the
thoughtful and diligent work of Rene
Kiihn and Campbell Parsons. Many
members of the UCC family have
commented that these features are
integral to staying connected to the
College. In future editions, we will
also be reporting on the variety
of exciting activities held by the
Association, including Association
Day, Founder's Dinner, Grandparents
Day at the Prep, as well as Branch
receptions and Class Reunions.
I hope you will find this issue interesting
and informative, and that you will
continue to let us know what you
would like to see in our future issues.

their service or
a few common
characteristics. One of the most
integral is the organization's ability
to develop a compelling vision for
its future and to build, in its various
constituencies, a deep sense of
commitment to that vision. UCC's
Strategic Plan paints an exciting
and innovative vision for the UCC
of today and the future.
In the mid-eighties, Upper
Canada College underwent an
exhaustive thought process about
what it does and how it should be
done in the future. This process,
which was lead by a Faculty
Steering Committee, then a Board
Committee, culminated in the
creation of The Statement of the
Aims and Objectives of Upper
Canada College. The Board of
Governors unanimously approved
this document in 1990, then
communicated it to the UCC
community in 1991 through the
Old Times. This document was
the first step to establishing the
College's mission and principal
goals and voicing them as clearly as
possible to all College stakeholders.
In 1988, using The Aims and
Objectives document as the context
for further planning, the school
started the process of writing its own
Strategic Plan. This plan would
describe the very important
processes of seeing how well UCC
has implemented the objectives
laid out in The Aims and Objectives
document, and would set
expectations for the future,
including a timetable for achieving
those goals. Three years ago,
Principal Doug Blakey produced
UCC 2001 - The Implementation
of the Aims and Objectives of Upper
Canada College Over the Next Five
Years, commonly referred to as the
Strategic Plan. In late 1998 and
early 1999, a series of roundtable
discussions were held with faculty
and staff to explore progress against
the plan. During this period the
Strategic Plan has served as the
blueprint for the design and
Summer 2 o o o
implementation of programs,
facilities and fundraising initiatives.
Today, it continues to serve as a guide
for the principal, senior management
and the Board for strategic decision-
making at the College. In January
2000, the Board of Governors
endorsed a communications strategy
to disseminate the plan to all of the
UCC's Strategic Plan is a work
in progress, and one which is being
implemented against a backdrop
of events, some of which cannot
be foreseen. However, the plan
has evolved from a deep and careful
consideration of what the College
must do if it is to fully achieve
The following is a commentary
by Principal Doug Blakey on the
implementation of the Strategic Plan
and his thoughts on the vision and
its implications to the contemporary
educational experience at UCC.
CC WILL PROVIDE A
1 CHALLENGING LIBERAL ARTS
PROGRAM, WHICH WE BELIEVE IS
CRUCIAL TO GOOD CITIZENSHIP.
When UCC was established in 1829,
its principal goal, as envisaged by
the founder Sir John Colborne,
was to provide a liberal course of
instruction to young men who would
prove themselves to be useful to
the colony. The first principal,
Joseph Harris, declared that UCC
represented an enlightened regard
for the public good.
Generally, a liberal education
provides a balanced program and
involves concurrent study of a broad
range of traditional disciplines -
English, a second language, the
humanities, experimental sciences,
mathematics and the arts. Included
Upper Canada College
■ pper Canada College is an independent school, which provides
boys with stimulating academic and co-curricular programs,
grounded in the liberal arts tradition. The College will provide
programs to develop their creativity and insight, as well as their ability
to establish a strong sense of personal identity, a broad knowledge base,
clear values and goals, and the passion to learn. UCC will strive to
educate young men, from around the world, to be capable of both doing
good and doing well as they live, work and play in a world that demands
tolerance, flexibility, communication, personal resilience and expertise.
in the program is participation in
a variety of extracurricular activities,
including athletic, creative and
service to society. This is a traditional
mind, body, and spirit curriculum
with particular emphasis on balance
and concurrency. The modern liberal
education is infused throughout
with an international perspective,
the creativity curriculum, current
pedagogical approaches and the use
of technology where it is thought
to enhance the learning process.
THE FIVE GOALS OF THE
• We will educate boys to become
• Through a challenging liberal arts
program, we will educate our boys
to succeed in the 21st Century
• We will seek to admit to UCC a
diverse group of boys who are
capable of benefiting from and
contributing toward the UCC
• We will ensure continuing
leadership in the field of
• We will continue to create a physical
environment that supports UCC's
For a long time, UCC has been
dedicated to providing a liberal
arts education. With the adoption
of the IB Diploma program for a
student's final two years, we have
re-committed ourselves to this
educational program. What is a
fundamental change for us is that
students can no longer select from
one or two of the traditional
disciplines to specialize with a
narrow perspective. We are now
ensuring balance and concurrency
of study. We are also working
toward balance in the extracurricular
program so that students cannot
shy away from extracurricular
participation or from any of the
three important components:
athletics, creativity and service.
They must spend some time in
all three areas in order to gain
the International Baccalaureate
The IB provides the currency
which a truly modern education
requires. There is a great risk in
the back-to-basics movement that
content will be taught at the expense
of intellectual capacity. Relevance
is more than just jumping on the
latest trend. The world is evolving
too quickly to merely teach
information. Learning how to learn
is as important as learning the
various disciplines. These are the
reasons why we believe the IB fits
so well with a traditional UCC
education: it offers a balanced,
rigorous education, teaches critical
thinking, encourages good
citizenship, and gives the students
strong communication skills so
they can express themselves.
RJ ATIVITY IS ESSENTIAL TO
UCC'S COMMITMENT TO
MAINTAIN AN INNOVATIVE
The academic part of the IB
program is rich in rigour, critical
thinking and the mastery of the
traditional disciplines of a liberal
education. At UCC it is very
important to ensure that our
strong commitment to the arts
continues but, more broadly, to
expand creative endeavours in
We look on the combination of
the International Baccalaureate
and the Creativity curriculum as
an educational program of amazing
dynamism. Our graduates will
not only leave the College with
disciplined and critical minds, but
also will be imaginative thinkers
prepared to take sensible risks. An
important part of the work being
done in understanding creativity
and the cultivation of creative
behaviour in students is the
business of instilling intellectual
courage. If you can convince
someone to have the courage to
think for himself, you have armed
him with one of the most powerful
tools available. Critical, independent
thought goes hand-in-hand with
imagination and innovation.
Being a critical thinker requires
a huge degree of courage because
it means rejecting generalities and
going against the accepted wisdom
of the day. For instance, I think
one of the strengths of the College
is that we accept, and even welcome,
the dissenting voice. I have no
doubt that it takes a good deal of
courage to write a piece in the Blue
Page when you know that many of
your friends or teachers may find
your opinions difficult to accept.
What goes with teaching young
men to think for themselves is the
requirement that we teach them
about sensible risk-taking and to
encourage them to be prepared to
make mistakes without fearing
penalty - there is a tendency in
schools to be unforgiving about
Through the work of our
teachers, we are trying to increase
the stimulus and opportunity for
creativity to occur in all subjects,
not just the arts. Playfulness is
an important element of the
program, as is creativity. But
perseverance is also critical;
therefore, we are trying to develop
in the boys the fortitude and
determination to overcome
obstacles and resistance. We are
trying to develop, in each student,
an appreciation of his own progress
by asking him to keep a tangible
record of his achievement in
portfolios of work maintained
over his time at UCC. Students
must also have opportunities to
appreciate the work of others, so
we encourage exhibitions, displays
and performance and help to
develop the sense of audience.
Creativity often occurs during the
integration of varied experiences,
which can be stimulated through
collaboration and team work and
is very inspiring and exciting.
PORTS WILL CONTINUE TO
PROVIDE AN IMPORTANT ROLE
IN THE LIFE OF THE COLLEGE
Sports have always been central
to the life of the College and will
continue to be so. For example, we
continue to spend time revamping
our intramural sports program
and for our senior boys, the IB
calls for participation in sports.
It is impossible to achieve the IB
Diploma without involvement
In a much broader sense, sports
will retain the important place they
have always held at the school.
Playing team sports cultivates
cooperation, responsibility to
others, a sense of pride and self-
discipline, all of which must be
encouraged. Many more sports are
played now than even a few years
ago, both at the first team and
intramural levels. An expanding
intramural program also provides
greater opportunity for all boys to
participate at a variety of levels.
in fitness and sports are essential
to the development of the talents
of the individual. It brings me
back to the notion of balance in a
modern liberal education. There
has been a gradual shift in recent
years toward a holistic approach
to mental and physical health
of the individual. We want our
students to learn to make healthy
lifestyle decisions and one of the
ways of doing that is through
an active sports program that

ONTINUING LEADERSHIP IS
CENTRAL TO MAINTAINING
OUR POSITION AS A
VANGUARD OF EDUCATION.
People are increasingly aware of
the importance of education in
preparing our young people for an
uncertain future. I believe UCC
has a responsibility - more now
than any time in our past - to use
its substantial resources to provide
leadership in education. We are
contributing to the ongoing
improvement of the International
Baccalaureate Program, the
International Coalition of Boys
Schools, the Canadian Association
of Independent Schools and the
Canadian Educational Standards
Institute. Individual UCC teachers
are providing leadership in many
ways within numerous professional
organizations. We are breaking
new ground in Canada with
Horizons, which is designed to
assist in the education of less
privileged students. We have done
a lot of work recently with our
summer programs to set up new
and innovative activities that
cannot easily be accomplished
during the regular school year.
In the traditional model of
philanthropy, those who have are
obliged to give some of it away to
those who do not. If that were all
we were pursuing toward fulfilling
our obligations as a privileged
institution, I think we would be
content to offer financial aid and
do no more. What Horizons provides
us with is the chance to offer some
unique opportunities to some
special students while, at the same
time, offering new challenges to
our own students and faculty.
There are some very bright
students out there who are, to
be somewhat dramatic, at risk
of jeopardizing their academic
futures, and therefore their future
careers, by making some bad
choices early in their schooling.
Think about that bright student
who, during the years before
entering high school, out of
boredom or frustration
or some sort of discontent, starts
closing doors on future school
opportunities. Once those doors
are closed it's almost impossible
to reopen them. We think that
the Horizons project can bring
these bright kids to the College
over the summer and help them
to keep their sights set high. We
can help them bridge that difficult
time through junior high when
enthusiasm for academics can
wane with long term and
From our side, the benefits would
be considerable. We see our senior
students becoming mentors and
assistants and our faculty teaching
a new group of students to meet an
entirely new set of needs.
We have very talented and
dedicated people at UCC and there
are a lot of other ways that UCC
can and needs to provide leadership
in education and share what it has
developed and learned with the
wider educational community.
To be a leader in education requires
substantial resources and facilities
- just ask the folks at the University
of Toronto, Queen's and Harvard
about that. I hope that the UCC
community will support the need
for UCC to work more vigorously
than ever to provide leadership in
education - if we can't muster the
necessary support among those who
believe in us, it just won't happen.
DMITTING A DIVERSE GROUP
OF BOYS, WHO ARE CAPABLE
OF BENEFITING FROM AND
CONTRIBUTING TOWARD THE
UCC EXPERIENCE, WILL BE
Upper Canada College exists for
the public good and is committed
to doing its part for the community.
We are in an extraordinarily privileged
position and the Strategic Plan has
a good deal to say about what we
owe in return. The ideals of the
IB fit with the founding vision of
the College, namely to produce
graduates who will serve their
community. Our students find
themselves doing remarkable work
for others - everything from working
in food banks to serving overseas.
If we expect our students to serve
their community, then UCC must
take a leadership role and set an
example. On a very small scale, it
means making sure that we make
our facilities available for such things
as the Terry Fox Run or the Harry
Jerome Awards. On a larger scale, it
means making sure that access to the
College and the programs it offers
are not beyond the reach of the
promising student who lacks the
financial resources. We are providing
over $950,000 every year in financial
aid and we are committed in the
Strategic Plan to tripling that
amount over the next five years. If
there are students out there who
would thrive at the College, and
from whom the school
would benefit, they
should be able to attend
The Strategic Plan
calls for us to have the
mirror as best we
can the Canadian
population and to
diversity here at the
College. This doesn't
simply mean using financial
aid to attract those who cannot
afford to come to the College. It
means actively seeking students
from non-traditional cultural
backgrounds. This is an astonishingly
well-to-do city and there are lots of
boys out there who would benefit
from the education we have to
offer and who have the financial
resources to come here. But for a
variety of reasons many of these
boys do not come - yet another set
of barriers we have to bring down.
The global perspective that we are
eager to cultivate does not come
simply from the international
students in the boarding houses.
It will also come from making sure
we have the broadest possible
representation from all those groups
that make Canada what it is.
he College's facilities
will continue to be
Even if our program were not
evolving as quickly as it is, there
would still be a need to keep our
facilities up to date. The Renaissance
XXI project was an ambitious step
forward in modernizing facilities
at the Prep and at the Upper School.
The past few years have seen the
College complete the next
major step which includes
the new Elizabeth Lee
Primary Wing at the
Prep school, the
Creativity Centre and
Student Centre, as
well as the start of an
to support our
Horizons. All these
initiatives have been
realized as the College has
developed and created new needs for
specialized facilities. Ultimately the
Phase II additions to the Athletic
Centre will be further developed.
Being adequate is simply not
good enough. If you want to show
any sort of leadership at all you
have to acknowledge that while
programs and curriculum are
important, physical spaces also
require rigorous attention.
It will take a significant influx
of new capital to implement all the
elements of the Strategic Plan. If you
take the College's leadership role in
education seriously, you have to be
willing to spend the money. Good
teachers, good programs, good
facilities and the tools to open the
doors of the College to those with
limited financial resources are all
costly. Every day we demonstrate
our leadership in education. We've
pioneered new curriculae in the
IB, we've set new standards for
providing support services for
our students and, by any measure,
we are very good at what we do,
which is preparing boys for higher
education and for a full adult life
"Skills, Competency and Creativity
Address to Morning Assembly
Bernard Gustin ( y 58-'65)
Five years ago Bernie Gustin C65) starting working with UCC on the vision and ideas that have led to
creation of the Creativity Centre. He and his family are among the largest supporters whose donations
have made this centre possible. On the evening of April 12, 2000 Bernie also addressed the Benefactors
of the Centre at a reception in their honour.
Good morning gentlemen. Many
families and friends of UCC have
made the Creativity Center possible.
Why have we done this? What are
we trying to accomplish?
The arts have been at UCC for
a long time, but for many years
they have been on the sidelines, or
in the sub-basement, so to speak.
The new Creativity Center is at the
heart of the school. It represents a
commitment to put creativity at
the heart of the UCC experience
and to give each of you a stronger
chance than ever before to discover
and strengthen your creative skills.
Each of us has one overriding
purpose on this planet - to be
everything he can be, to find and
to bring to the fullest fruition the
goodness and the genius we each
have inside. That means dreaming
big dreams and realizing as many
of them as possible; being a good
person, a good friend, and a good
citizen; and leaving the world a
better place than you found it.
Especially in the two hundred
years since the industrial revolution,
we have set in motion
developments that threaten the
planet seriously. For all our
supposed progress, pollution
threatens the earth in many ways.
In this century alone, politicians
have led to the slaughter of over 100
million people. As you know, in
Kosovo, Zimbabwe, Lebanon,
Rwanda, Chechnya, and many
other places, this violence of man
against man continues unabated.
For all our intellectual progress,
discrimination based on religion,
race or creed remains prevalent in
much of the world.
Soon your hands will be on
the levers of power. The planet
needs for you to do a better job
than the generations that came
before you. You will need to be
more effective, more capable, and
more creative than the students
who preceded you.
But what can you do now, in
real, practical terms, here at UCC
every day, to prepare to play this
role? I think there are three main
First, you need to master the
basic skills - logical thinking, clear
and powerful writing, math, that
are at the heart of a UCC education
and the IB.
When you leave this school your
peers will be the smartest, most
talented, most hard working young
people everywhere on the planet
and you want to be as strong as
you can be to take your place
among them. That's the real core
of why your parents are sending
you here, and why the faculty are
here to help and support you. This
may sound obvious, but I'm going
to repeat it - if you want to come
out of here truly strong and
distinctive so that you can have a
decisively meaningful impact on
the planet, you must learn to write,
think, and reason as well as you
can - and probably far better than
You can do it, and it's really
The second thing you can do is
to try to understand what makes
you a unique person - what you
enjoy, what you seem to be gifted
at, what you do well in, as well as
the areas that you're not so strong
at. Usually, of course, the faculty
will help identify those areas for
you. But you need to take
responsibility for gaining as good
insights into yourself as you can.
I'm not just thinking of earning
good grades and covering the weak
areas. Very few of individuals can
be truly outstanding at everything.
A few people can be successful
simply as solid all-rounders. But
what seems to work best for most
of us is finding out what you enjoy
and are truly good at, and making
a special effort to build your
strengths in that area - whatever it
is. That way, as your confidence
grows, your performance will
improve further, which in turn will
build more self-confidence, and in
turn enhanced performance.
Of course you shouldn't focus
on just one tiny thing or one
narrow side of your development.
But if you try to do everything
"pretty well," you probably won't
end up doing any one thing
strongly enough or distinctively
enough to have a real edge in an
increasingly competitive world.
Again, for most of us the essence
of success lies in doing one or at
most a few things much better than
most other people. So strive to
find what that thing is for you, and
then do everything in your power
to become as excellent in it as you
can possibly be.
The great detective Sherlock
Holmes says at one point, "My
name is Sherlock Holmes, it is my
business to know what other
people don't know." Well, you had
better know some things - and
how to do some things - that other
people don't if you are to
distinguish yourself in this world.
The third thing you can do is to
learn to be as pro-active as you can
be, as creative as you can be, in
everything you do. This means in
everything. Creativity is not limited
to the arts or music or drama - as
wonderful an outlet as they can be
for it. On the sports field, in classics,
in maths, in history, in every field,
don't do or accept things just
because they've always been done
that way. Use your senses, and try
to understand the deeper meaning
of what your senses are telling you.
Sherlock Holmes said, of lesser
detectives, "they observe, but they
do not see." Well, you need to
observe and to listen, but then get
behind what you see and hear and
really figure out what's going on.
And then you need to decide in
a creative way how to take that
surface appearance and the deeper
meanings that lie behind it, and
build from them to fashion new
To sum up, what's needed is a
combination of strong mastery of
a few basic skills; a self-confident
sense of your special gifts and
talents; and creative, fearless acts
of imagination. Only through this
combination will you be able to
make the leaps of new contribution
that the planet requires and that
will lead to your greatest fulfillment
as a person.
Now, how does this relate to the
creativity center? Well, the IB
curriculum and the faculty will
help keep you focussed on the
basics. The creativity center has
been established to help all of
you have the greatest possible
opportunities to develop your
creativity and imagination. Use the
center. Work with the faculty and
with one another. Discover new
areas - I would bet that you'll find
that they open new vistas for you
to express yourself, and to gain
deeper insight into yourself and
the world around you.
Gentlemen, the planet and the
universe lie before you. They are
your playgrounds. They are your
workplace. They are also your
responsibility. UCC can provide
the tools - of skills, of unique
competence, of creativity - that
you will need to build your futures
and realize your destinies. But only
you can take those tools and make
them your own.
Seize the day, seize the tools.
Bemie Gustin was born in Paris to sun'ivors of the French resistance in WW II who
emigrated to Toronto when he was five. At UCC from 1958 to 1965, he was active in
sports and clubs at both the Prep and Upper Schools, was a Prefect in Seaton's House,
and won the Rankin Nesbitt trophy for public speaking. Bemie was an Ontario
Scholar and awarded the Duke of Edinburgh Silver award.
After studying at Wesleyan University in Connecticut and the University of Chicago,
from which he earned an MBA and PhD, Bemie had an academic career as a
professor at Yale University. He taught social history and sociology and was director
of the undergraduate program in sociology, and lectured throughout America
Bemie then had a long business career as a management consultant with McKinsey,
Price Waterhouse, and Ernst and Young, serving mainly multinational companies in
the US, Europe and Asia. Since the early 90's he has been an independent investment
advisor and director.
Bemie's interests are broad and diverse. He is very involved in the arts and advises
the top management of museums and universities around the world.
He is a cellist and a board member of the world's leading organization in identifying
and nurturing young classical musicians.
He restores antique cars, tours exotic countries by motorcycle, and sails all over the
world. Earlier this year he spent 6 months in New Zealand, helping organize the
New York Yacht Club Challenge in the America's Cup yatching regatta.
Address to the Leaving Class of 2000
Jehad Verjee ('89 -'00)
I was talking with a friend, who
told me that the best and worst
moments of his life occurred within
the walls of UCC. I feel the same way.
When thinking about the faculty
here, only a few words come
immediately to my mind: guidance,
knowledge, help, friends. Teachers at
this school have helped all of
us through our best and worst
moments. They have been there since
the beginning and they are here at
From Geo Jeopardy to Chemistry
Jeopardy to The Odyssey Jeopardy,
teachers have all tried to make their
subjects fun. But we as students,
whether we acknowledge it or not, do
find school fun, and this is not
common among many schools in the
world. It's not the facility; it's not the
grounds. Our faculty has made us
who we are today.
About eleven years ago, I erased my
answers on a marked math test and
accused Mr. McKenna of mis-marking
my paper. Knowing full well that I was
trying to cheat, he let me save face in
front of the class by not disciplining me.
One of my foremost and most lasting
lessons was learnt in the first month of
grade 3 from a teacher that went above
the rules to do what was right.
The clubs and activities in which
we all partake stem from a faculty
commitment. At Martingrove, they
cannot have a rugby team because
no teacher will coach it. This is
unheard of here. The dedication of
our faculty to the all around
education is selfless. Be they as club
faculty advisors or extended -essay
advisors, our teachers will always look
at our good before theirs.
As I sat in my bed yesterday
morning staring at the black void in
my schedule that is first period French
class, I decide to go back to sleep. I
know that this decision is made by
most of us students each morning,
and some have more willpower than I,
but those of us that feel that we've
paid the price of good attendance
don't mean contempt. There is no
attendance 'problem'; I hope our
teachers understand the choices that
we are mature enough to make,
something only found in a faculty
All of our faculty is inspiring. At
what other school could such a group
of poets, playwrights, scientists, artists,
historians and linguists come together
and devote themselves to others,
especially students like us.
It is said that the content of our
education to this point is worthless. It
is not what we learn, but HOW we
learn. Our teachers have taught us to
learn and taught us to be who we are.
There is a little bit of every teacher we
have ever had in all of us. The
organization skills taught to us by the
History Department, the creative skills
from the English Department, the
analytical skills given to us by the
Science Department, all parts of us, all
parts of our education and our lives.
Skills that will stick with us for the rest
of our lives are taught here and in the
Prep. Lessons are learnt fully and
completely by the most competent
group of people that I have ever seen.
Each of us have our moments. Each
of us remembers specific events which
make us who we are. We all know the
time in class where it clicked: this is
what we love. Be it English, History,
Science or Computers, we all have
our niche. The teacher, the moment,
the fact, are all burned into our
memory. Be it finding God in Ben
Okri or seeing the beauty of the C
major scale, we have found our
calling, shown to us only through the
devotion of our faculty.
After eleven years, all I can
remember is moments. The
Foundations project in grade 7, Dipsy
Doodle in grade 9, grade 1 1 physics
with Tex Coleman, and the poetry of
Yeats and Plath. It doesn't matter what
we learnt, the passion with which it
was taught is lasting.
I should end on a personal note.
The love of learning that I feel is
directly due to the people here at UCC
that have invested their time and
energy into making my life better.
Their care as teachers, coaches and
friends has made me who I am. We
only remember the best and the worst,
but it's the middle that shapes us. All
of us owe an unspeakable amount to
you. On behalf of the 2000 Leaving
Class, I thank the faculty for teaching
us all that we know, and for making us
all that we are.

Reflections on Options, Breadth and Passion
- Making Them Work for You"
Address at The Annual Distribution of Prizes
Dr. William Leggett, Principal & Vice-Chair, Queens University at Kingston
Good morning ladies and gentlemen.
It is a pleasure to be with you, and a
privilege to have been asked to offer
some thoughts to you on the splendid
occasion of your annual prize ceremony.
Before I go any further I want to
express my congratulations to the prize
winners. Coming out on top in an
environment as rich in accomplishment
as this is a signal honour. You and
our colleagues, teachers and families
should be very proud of what you
In his letter of invitation, your
Principal kindly invited Claire and me
for lunch at Grant House. And he
reminded me that Queen's and Upper
Canada College share elements of this
wonderful "Grant" name.
Queen's most famous principal was
George Monroe Grant. He was the father
of William "Choppy" Grant who left his
Queen's faculty position to become your
Principal in 1917. You have a Grant
House and we have a Grant Hall!
Together, we recognize and celebrate a
father and son who contributed
immensely to the advancement of
quality in education in this country.
While he was a "Prof" at Queen's in
the early part of this century, Choppy
strongly supported the notion of
"balance" in studies. He did this with
great uncompromising enthusiasm.
Indeed, he insisted that a student's day
requires 9 hours of study and 3 hours
He also asserted that study is more
important than sports in moulding
character. As one who put far too much
emphasis on sports when I was your age,
I must reluctantly agree.
If you come to Queen's for your
university years (and I sincerely hope you
will) you will find that this "9 and 3"
formula is still applied. No longer by
Choppy's fiat, but by the choice of our
students. In fact we have the largest
number of intercollegiate athletic teams
and the highest participation rate in
intramural and recreational athletics of
any university in the country.
We have been less able to control what
happens during the other 12 hours in the
day - but we do seek to mould it by
providing and supporting the richest and
most diverse array of extracurricular
programs, clubs and student-led
initiatives in Canada. And our students
continually assure me that these activities
also mould character.
Much as you do here at UCC, at
Queen's we encourage and support
students in their efforts to develop their
interests, their interpersonal skills, their
sense of citizenship and leadership, both
in and beyond the classroom. Our goal is
really quite simple; it is to provide the
very best educational experience in
Canada, and in so doing, to prepare our
graduates for their roles as true leaders
and citizens in a global society.
In reflecting on a topic that might
both interest you and hopefully also
cause you to reflect on the choices
before you, my mind kept returning
to the comments of several of my
students about some of my previous
talks. To be completely honest, there have
They note that: Bill Leggett has a
tendency to get off the subject ... They
also acknowledge that he always manages
to get back on track. I'm likely to do
both this morning.
My theme, briefly stated, has three
First, as you go forward in your lives
at UCC and beyond, keep your options
open. Don't allow yourself to be trapped
by pressures or preconceived notions
about what your future role in life will
be. Understand that life is more about
preparing yourself to exploit opportunity
than it is about making early and
Second, strive to gain as much as you
possibly can from your learning
environments. It is not sufficient to
simply master a discipline. You must also
use these environments to develop your
interpersonal skills, your ability to
communicate (which, by the way,
includes the ability to listen effectively),
to lead and to follow.
These vital skills will serve you well
throughout your life, long after the facts
and technical skills you learn today are
forgotten or rendered obsolete by the
relentless advance of knowledge.
Third, bring passion to everything
you do. It will not only enhance your
interest and accomplishment; it
will inspire those around you to
There, I've said it. My speech is
finished and in less than three minutes. I
can tell from your faces that many of you
are delighted! Who needs advice from a
60-something bald guy anyway!
However, there are some faces out
there that suggest they are expecting me
to say more. And, after all, the College is
providing lunch! So, drawing on the
wisdom of a favourite mixed metaphor,
that one must not drop anchor until one
is out of the woods, I'll try to get out of
As I look around the room at the
many prize winners in the school, I see a
group of individuals who know about
You have chosen to participate, to
compete, and to win. In your studies,
you have had to make choices about
understanding the world we live in,
about which tools to master, about
developing habits of inquiry and healthy
scepticism, all in preparation for your
future. You are busy people.
Let me put you on notice. You will
discover that education after UCC will
impose even more choices. It does this
because there are so many options. You
have to make trade-offs, to sacrifice in
one area for benefits in another. Your
approach to these trade-offs is very
Let me demonstrate what I mean by
drawing on the words of someone more
famous and knowledgeable than I.
The famous nuclear physicist, Robert
Oppenheimer, who led an exceptional
team of scientists in what was, without
question, the most focused applied
research project of this century, the
Manhattan Project, wrote these words to
his younger brother who seemed to be
prematurely settling on a particularly
confining course of study. Oppenheimer
wrote: "let me urge you to keep an open
mind: to cultivate an interest in every
intellectual discipline, and in the non-
academic excellences of the world, so
that you may not lose that freshness of
mind from which alone the life of the
mind derives, and that your choice,
whatever it be, of work to do, may be a
real choice, and one reasonably free."
I could not agree more. Make choices
that allow you to keep your options
This brings me to a sub theme - to
the point where I may momentarily go
off track. Research shows that students
learn better when they are actively
involved in the process — when they ask
questions rather than simply memorize
facts, when they participate in study
groups, when they write and rewrite
drafts, when they read and interpret, and
when they receive frequent feedback
from their teachers.
In my view, the best teaching is
designed to confront students with the
need to test ideas against facts and
experience, to find new ways to approach
and solve difficult problems, to explore
the meanings hidden behind the text.
Indeed this activity is the fundamental
ingredient of original scholarship, of
individual or group discovery. The very
best universities adopt this approach.
They focus more on what we need to
know and how to develop that
knowledge than on what we do know.
They stimulate the mind.
It should come as no surprise,
therefore, that this culture of enquiry,
and this approach to teaching is best
expressed in universities that are famous
for their contributions to scholarship.
Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Princeton,
Stanford, Queen's (and to be fair,
Toronto and McGill) are examples.
The truly great teaching universities of
the world are also, almost without
exception, the truly great research
universities of the world. The fabled
conflict between teaching and research is
a myth! Teaching and research are
symbiotic in nature.
Having said the evidence is in
regarding the essential characteristics of a
great educational environment, it is vital
that we recognize that a great deal of
learning can and should go on outside of
This brings me back on track, and to
my second theme.
It also returns me to the other 12
hours Choppy Grant was unable to
control - more options!!
Great universities create many
learning opportunities that derive
not from what they teach, but from
the environment within which that
You meet utter strangers on university
campuses. Social and ethnic
backgrounds coalesce. People form
lifetime friendships, they network, and
together they participate in and celebrate
the rite of passage to independence and
There are few organizations more
successful than universities at
encouraging and facilitating our crossing
of social bridges. This diversity spans all
ages, academic achievement levels, and
artistic and athletic accomplishments.
Related to having fun and to this
socializing function, universities and
colleges also further the process of
coming of age, of growing up. For many
living away from home, often for the first
time. . .
You have to cope with new worlds...
Worlds where no one tells you when to
get up in the morning or when to cut
down on junk food.
Sounds pretty good doesn't it!!!
From my own perspective, these
experiences are not only valued, they are
a vital element of the real academic
purpose of universities.
They are not available from courses or
programs offered over the Internet, they
cannot be maximized by a commuter
mindset or lifestyle, or by a part-time
commitment. Being there and being
involved is vital if you seek to maximize
the benefits you derive from the
Think about it - the truly great
universities of the world are also
overwhelmingly residential in character.
They facilitate and foster being involved,
growing as an individual, developing
confidence and perspective.
This brings me to my third theme.
The importance of bringing passion to
your approach in all you do.
Allow me to briefly illustrate by
describing how I came to be an
oceanographer and a university
principal. This is heavy stuff, so future
scientists take note! ...
I have already alluded to my passion
for athletics. It almost kept me out of
university. I was saved by my high school
principal, Maurice Cline, who had a
different passion - a passion for ensuring
that those who could succeed did so. He
forced me to apply myself in a more
balanced way and opened the door to
opportunities I could never have
I began a degree in the humanities . . .
science was never my strong suit.
Ultimately, in my last year, I was forced
to confront the reality that I needed one
science elective to graduate. Having
delayed so long, only one course fit my
schedule, a course in vertebrate zoology.
The professor, Geoffrey Power, was
one of those exceptional teachers who
brought a passion for creative enquiry to
his course, and a passion for students
and their interests to his interactions
with us. By Christmas he had lit my
scientific fire and by Easter he had
convinced me that I should pursue a
career in science. I had imbibed of his
passion and had developed my own!
Geoff Power was a fisheries ecologist
so I became one too - largely because of
his enthusiasm and mentoring.
Let me pause here to remind you
what I said about the importance of
passion in your life, and of the impact
that passion can have on the lives of
others. The passion of Maurice Cline and
Geoffrey Power changed my life. They
gave me passion for what I do.
The rest is relatively straightforward.
My passion for my science created the
opportunity to teach and research - first
at McGill, and now at Queen's. It also
ensured that I did it well.
My passion for interacting with
students and helping them to learn led
to two outcomes - a highly rewarding
career as a teacher, and the discovery
that by assuming administrative
responsibilities that came my way, I
could broaden my mentorship, my
contribution, and the scope of my
passion for education.
Let me pause again. Note that none
of this was highly planned. The
somewhat unusual breadth of my
education created opportunities, and
provided me with an unforeseen
potential to seize those opportunities as
they came my way. And the passion that
others shared with me, and helped me
develop in myself, fuelled the successes I
Focus for a moment on that last
word - enjoyed. Cherished and
treasured would also suffice. The vital
message is that success is measured as
much by the satisfaction you derive
from what you do, as it is from what it
is you do. Whatever you do, do it well!
Let me conclude with a story about
service to others that I trust will help to
bring all these elements together: the
importance of options, of developing
life skills, and of passion for work and
It's a fable and if you've heard it
before, forgive my repeating it and
please don't give away the punch line.
There was a busy little ant who worked
very hard all summer long — carefully
using all his intellect and physical
capacity storing away a harvest of
cookie and cake crumbs and bits of
bread and caraway seeds. He worked
like a demon. Nose to the ground — he
scurried back and forth all day long.
Did he notice the blue sky or the soft
blush of a crimson sunset? Did he stop
to see the dew and the petals of a rose?
He was too busy rushing back and
forth filling his larder.
His neighbour was a merry little
cricket who sang all day long and into
the night. He didn't bother with seeds
or crumbs or cakes — he danced and
sang -and enjoyed the world, making it
a cheerful place with all his melodies.
When winter came the ant was snug
in his larder — and the cricket was
shivering in the snow. And because the
ant resented the fact that the cricket had
not been industrious, the cricket was
not welcome in the ant's larder. You
know where I'm going with this — we
all know the moral of this story. But to
be perfectly honest with you, I always
thought the ant was a jerk!
Both the ant and the cricket were
passionate about their activities, but
balance was missing in how they
approached their lives and in the
choices they made.
I promise I won't get off my topic
now and add a fourth theme about the
importance of balance in life. Instead,
let me get in a short commercial for
balance and close by saying, if you're a
natural born ant — open your heart and
take time in life to smell the roses — and
if you're a cricket — god bless you.
Congratulations to all this morning's
prize winners and thank you for your
attention and the wonderful hospitality
that has been shown to Claire and I
during our stay with you.

199o Sami Moussai &
Alex St. Louis
Watch out real world, the UCC
class of '96 is about to explode
out of university. Here's a taste of
what's going on. Al St. Louis and
Chuck Clark are playing hockey for
Queen's and have just finished a
successful season. That's only the
tip of the "lce"berg, with Benoit
Morin wearing a big "A" for
Princeton this season. One of my
original transitions: to the arts.
Hugh Eastwood took a term off
rowing but was still able to sing
with the Baker's Dozen, one of
Yale's a cappella groups. Jason
Yung Chang graduated from
Concordia Film School after
studying production. He received

businessmen never slow down
either... Matthew Farb spent last

going to grad school next year
(and I know it's a bunch), good
luck, the end of the tunnel is not
so far away. Worthy of special
note, James Flannery has joined
the navy in the U.K. Full marks

James. Watch for him in an
aquatic battle near you. Barney
Williams (technically '95), was
married in September of '99.
Congratulations gunner, from
all of us.
Liam Price, the student formerly
known as Will, is studying
International Security Studies.
He plans to be across the Pond
next year (hopefully, London or
Edinburgh). This semester has
been really busy, as he was also
working for Ted Kennedy at the
US Senate for about 20 hours a
week. He writes that "it's been
busy, but interesting." Evan Cappe
is enthusiastically studying History.
Steve Villeneuve is studying at
McGill. Justin Burul is currently
finishing his third year at Queen's

co-op term. After spending a year
at Neuchatel Junior College in
Switzerland, David Brebner was
accepted to University of Western
Ontario and later was successful in
applying to the Richard Ivey School
of Business at UWO. Recently,
he has been elected the Vice
President of Finance for the
University Students' Council, which
is a full time position and results
in him essentially taking a year off.
Michael Derzko is splitting his time
between representing the student
viewpoint in the committees and
boards of the Governing Council
of the University of Toronto, and
studying for a double major in
Economics and Physics. Michael
Dnnkwater is enjoying a challenging
year at the Ivey Business School
at Western. He is looking forward
to studying Spanish in Mexico this
summer. Others at Ivey are Cam
Macniven, Ken Thompson, and
Steve Scarrow. Ken Thompson got
offered the job of mayor of St.
Thomas, Ontario, but turned it
down. John Salloum is spending
far too much time for his own
good in a basement newsroom
as Editor-in-Chief of The McGill
Tribune. Tommy Mo is having an
awesome time in Guelph, away
from the usual crowd, and
experiencing things that high
school could never have offered
him. Jonathan Rosemberg is very
happy to be at McGill University
and is even happier that he only
has one year left to graduation,

Queen's where he plays on the
ultimate frisbee team. He is
working his third summer with
Goldman, Sachs & Co. Aleks

his junior year at Cornell where he
is studying Political Science and
Philosophy. He is in the process
of deciding between pursuing law
school or chef school in France
after graduation. Last summer
Aleks was a tour leader and guide
for a European tour company
based in New York. John Medland
somehow worked it so that he is
not enrolled in any academic
classes at Queen's. All he is doing
is playing rugby for the school.
Anthony Chan will be entering his
senior year at Cornell University
next year. After interning with CS
First Boston last summer, he is
eager to re-enter the world of
investment banking when he joins
Merrill Lynch in NYC this year.
Dean Tzembelecos is President
of the McGill chapter of the Kappa
Alpha fraternity. Ben Strong is
studying at McGill. He has been
recognized for having the best
head of hair in the entire student
body. Matt Denton is studying
Finance at Queen's. Jamie Spratt

he is in our hearts. He has been
studying at McGill for the past
two semesters and will return to
Queen's next fall for his final year.
Mark Gardiner spent the first
semester of his third year studying
in Spain. Apparently he beat up
some bulls and is now back out
east at Dalhousie. He spends a
lot of time running for the cross-
country team. Look for him to
make the National Championships
next year. Geoff Pertsch has a
perfect record as a starting pitcher
for the McGill baseball team - not
including his freshman year. He is
also studying mathematics and
computers. Andre Picher has taken
his third year to study abroad. He
says he is studying at a school in
France, but a more likely story is
that he is roaming Europe; a
drifter so to speak -just finding
a couch here and a couch there.
Chris Pettit is studying in the
faculty of education at McGill. He
spends most of his time roaming
the city looking for a place that is
showing the Leaf game. Mark
Vesley is studying engineering
at U of T.

Salamanca, Spain. Chris Burkett,
David Shaw, Shawn Zeytinoglu,
Pat Gossage, and Jordan Caspari
remain closely linked to UCC:
they live in the same house at
Queen's. Dave is hard at work on
a Commerce degree, while Chris,
Shawn, and Pat pursue Arts
degrees. Jordan is the lone
science major, proving that
ANYTHING is possible... David
Busch enjoyed a successful, albeit
shortened hockey season in his
sophomore year at UNH. Dave
recently suffered a broken leg,
much to the chagrin of his team,
for whom Dave had become a
major contributor. Sam Finkleman
and Al "Granny" Gransden share
an apartment in Halifax, while
continuing their studies at King's

transfer student. Martin Green
